Cloud Backend Developer at growing Scandinavian AdTech

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated
If you are a competent backend developer who wants to take your skills further and get scale-up experience from an AdTech company – you should check this out. The platform we’ve developed in-house runs as a self-service 24/7 and responds to thousands of auctions per second. Our customers specify where they want their ads to appear based on relevant content in newspapers. We’ve overcome the well-known challenge of reaching the target audience, but without any use of personal data.

At Kobler you’ll get 16 new colleagues with different nationalities and backgrounds:

from sales, product development, software development and data science, to operations and testing. Together, we’ve created an environment with inquiring and dedicated team players assuming versatile developer roles, covering a wide range of tasks; from early design stages to implementation, DevOps and maintenance. Production lines are short and quick, so you’ll see the results of your work and get feedback right away.

We don’t use the term “flat structure” – we just work together, sit together, walk together, eat together – break new ground together.

Kobler is a trusted B2B company located at House of Digital Innovation – Epicenter Oslo.

We’ve powered the search engine for the Norwegian Parliament for many years, and we work with the largest media houses in Norway and Sweden and their infrastructure partners, Google and Appnexus. Our customers are large and medium sized well-known advertisers like If, Telia, TalkMore and Norwegian, and their media agencies, like Red Dentsu X, OMD, Carat and Vizeum. The company language is English.

We invite you to make an impact in a growing company where you get the chance to work on novel problems across the board and tech challenges at the forefront of the AdTech industry. We need your help to make the most effective and human-friendly advertising products in the business! Both for the advertiser and the consumer.

Join the team to make our platform scalable to other countries.

Our expertise is semantic text analysis, and, in a user data driven AdTech world, we solve the same problems without any use of personal data – strongly believing this a more tasteful approach to targeted marketing.


You have experience with building distributed systems, but industry knowledge is not a must. It’s your passion and your knack for solving difficult problems with clean code that we’re looking for, regardless of your programming language background. You have a higher degree, and you work in Norway or one of the other Nordic countries.

We mainly use the following:

  • Java, Kotlin

  • Postgres, MySQL, Redshift

  • Redis

  • Apache Solr

  • Apache Flink

  • AWS

It’s a bonus if you have experience with some or all of these, but it’s not a requirement.

  • Competitive salary

  • Flexible working hours

  • Five weeks paid vacation. Flexibility on when you use it
